Due to John’s special concern for the families who lost loved ones in the 9/11 terrorist attacks, he has continuously served as a docent at the 9/11 Pentagon Memorial in Arlington since the program’s inception in 2009. Away from work, John enjoys competitive ultra-running (running distances of 50 km or more) and boating and is an avid fan of D.C.’s professional sports teams.

At the age of 10, I charted stocks and spent my allowance on books about the stock market and Wall Street. Fifty-plus years later I still learn something new every day.
